Melanie is absolutely wonderful!!! She worked to get us exactly what we wanted and was incredibly reasonably priced. She even dealt with the last minute discovery of stairs at our venue that made delivery less than ideal! She is incredibly sweet and professional and, most importantly, makes wonderfully delicious cakes. Everyone raved about how great our cake tasted and even we were shocked that it was even better than the tasting! We loved working with STBO and will definitely continue to be customers long into our marriage! :)

Dry! What more can I say? They promised not to make our cupcakes too far in advance to avoid that, but I guess they had to make them a day or two ahead of time. They tasted old and stale, not moist at all. The presentation was pretty and they were on time, but the taste wasn't worth the money we spent. We also wish they'd had more flavors to choose from.

Not sure what happened here. Cake tasting was delicious, cake at the reception was awful. Awful to the point that several incredibly rude people commented on it. Owner is very nice and is the utmost professional, but I paid entirely too much money for a cake that tasted like plastic. It was very pretty though.

Melanie and her staff are wonderful. I sought them out just two weeks before my wedding and they were able to not only make a beautifully unique wedding cake for me, but they were also able to execute an even more unique bouquet for me. I was almost in tears by Melanie's helpfulness. I would highly recommend.

What a fantastic find! Melanie created a beautiful and delicious cake for our daughter's wedding. We had 3 weeks to get everything together during the holiday rush, and Melanie accommodated us without hesitation. The cake was both beautiful and delicious, and delivery was on time to the venue. The customer service was phenomenal. Melanie is a true professional, very calm while allowing her fun personality and love for creation shine through.

The service was great! I couldn't have asked for a better tasting and gorgous cake that they provided me with! We had a little hicup at the wedding regarding the top tier, but they are making that right for me. No big deal. But they were amazing, showed up on time and made a beautiful cake. Even before the wedding and the tasting was a great experience. I would recommend them! Delicious!

Melanie runs an IMMACULATE business. I had the most beautiful and tasty cake and she sat down with me so we could design a cake together. She let me look through the book and condense some different elements from the designs in the book. I had a very tight budget and she worked with me to find the perfect cake within my price range. I wish there was another star because she was wonderful from the start and she has crazy talent for making unique cakes. Also, I originally had another vendor contracted for my cake and he had a personal situation at the last minute, Melanie did all of this for me and I truly truly could not have been happier with her service!!!

We worked with Melanie and her team on day of coordination services. Day of coordination is a bit misleading, because we met with her at the very beginning of planning and in the weeks leading up to the wedding to make sure all of the details were hashed out. It made such a difference in how smoothly the day went. We had initially planned for an outdoor ceremony, but after a week of rain, we had to move it inside. Melanie and her team adapted without batting an eye and helped coordinate all of the vendors and guests. They were very warm and friendly and helped us take care of last minute fires, like a stain on a bridesmaid's dress that they helped get out right before the ceremony started. They helped to make our day so fun and easy and I would definitely recommend them to other brides!

We worked with Melanie and her team on day of coordination services. Day of coordination is a bit misleading, because we met with her at the very beginning of planning and in the weeks leading up to the wedding to make sure all of the details were hashed out. It made such a difference in how smoothly the day went. We had initially planned for an outdoor ceremony, but after a week of rain, we had to move it inside. Melanie and her team adapted without batting an eye and helped coordinate all of the vendors and guests. They were very warm and friendly and helped us take care of last minute fires, like a stain on a bridesmaid's dress that they helped get out right before the ceremony started. They helped to make our day so fun and easy and I would definitely recommend them to other brides! Read less

Our dream wedding could not have been possible without Melanie's event planning. Everyone told us that something would go wrong and to shrug it off. Melanie and her team made sure that we didn't know if something went wrong because they made it their priority to handle it. We had a 200 person wedding, and I could not have felt more comfortable or ready for the event with Melanie by my side. Melanie went above and beyond to make our day truly special. The cake was beautiful and the decorations were gorgeous. Hiring Sweet Thing Black Orchid is one of the best decisions you can make. They are trustworthy, easy to work with and extremely creative. We would recommend Sweet Thing Black Orchid 100 times over. Thank you so much Melanie and team!
